At ArcelorMittal Europe, we provide solutions with certified fire resistance performances in accordance with the most severe standards for testing at the European level:
- Facades, made of insulated sandwich panels, are certified for fire resistance in single storey buildings.
- Composite floor solutions, like Cofrastra®, are fire resistant up to two hours (REI120) without additonal protection.
- CoSFB® flooring solutions, combining the slim floor beam and composite floor concepts, are also fire resistant up to two hours (REI 120) without additional fire protection.
- In single storey public or residential buildings, the combination of our light steel framing solutions and plasterboard internal partitioning offers a suitable and competitive solution concerning fire resistance.
Our R&D department has extensive expertise in fire resistant steel solutions including fire engineering.
As safety is a large part of ArcelorMittal’s core values, we constantly extend our range of products and solutions in order to satisfy the most demanding requirements with respect to fire resistance performance.
Construction components are not tested for fire resistance performance. This performance requirement is only applicable to full building applications such as facades, doors, composite decking, or roofing.
However, products and components are key contributors to fire resistance performance.
